Istanbul - Blue Mosque and Hippodrome Pictures

The Blue Mosque and the adjacent Hippodrome are two of the most popular sites for visitors in Istanbul. The Blue Mosque is spectacular and one of the largest mosques in the world. The Hippodrome is one of the most ancient sites in Istanbul and was originally a stadium where chariot races and other arena events was held. Little remains of the Hippodrome today, except for three large columns. Click on each picture to enlarge.
